Watch Drake Do A New Freestyle In Detroit

Last night, Drake brought his Jungle tour with Future to the Palace Of Auburn Hills, the arena just outside Detroit. He took the opportunity to unveil a new “freestyle” — an a cappella verse that was absolutely not done off the dome. Instead, like so many Drake verses, it was a carefully worded rebuke to… More »

Juicy J – “Tryna Fuck” (Feat. Drake & Ty Dolla $ign)

For a while last year, the legendary Memphis rap hardhead libertine Juicy J was cranking out great singles like “Low” (with Nicki Minaj, Lil Bibby, and Young Thug) and “Ice” (with Future and A$AP Ferg), and he still couldn’t get a release date for his album Pure THC: The Hustle Continues. That’s more an indictment… More »

Drake – “On A Wave” (Feat. Tinashe) + “Go Out Tonight”

Looks like Drake has another leak problem. (Last year, if you’ll recall, he was forced to release three tracks after hackers got a hold of them.) Earlier this week, an unfinished version of Beyoncé collab “Can I” made its way its way online, and now two other tracks have surfaced. Both of them seem to… More »

Drake – “Can I” (Feat. Beyoncé)

A few days ago, a super short snippet of a new Drake song called “Can I” surfaced, and various versions of it have been swirling around the web since then. The most definitive version so far leaked a few hours ago, it seems, and it features a full Drake verse, plus a short vocal from… More »

Drake And Diddy Make Peace

Drake and Diddy reportedly got into a fistfight last December over “0 To 100/The Catch Up,” the Boi-1da-produced banger that Diddy claims was originally intended for him before Drake turned it into one of the best songs of 2014.

Popcaan – “Unruly Prayer” Video (Feat. Drake)

Meek Mill – “Energy (Freestyle)”

If Meek Mill has enemies trying to rob him of this energy, is that really a problem? Isn’t Meek Mill’s energy an endlessly renewable resource? Isn’t it solar power?

Status Ain’t Hood: Will Rich Homie Quan Ever Stop Going In?

Rich Homie Quan could’ve easily been a one-and-done, a craggy-voiced fake Future who scored one transcendent hit out of nowhere and then disappeared right back into the Atlanta underground. And if he’d gone away after “Type Of Way,” that still would’ve been a good run. That’s an incredible song, a confident melodic slink that float… More »

The Week In Pop: From The Earliest MP3 To The Latest Britney Spears, A Pop History Of Suzanne Vega’s “Tom’s Diner”

“Tom’s Diner” is one of those songs you know even if you don’t realize it.
